    Ive had my freedom chair for nearly 10 years now.

    It is /absolutely/ worth every single cent. Im on my 4th set of armrest pads too, and they still replace them under its warranty!

    Not trying to be a dick at all, seriously, but $740 is out of Cory’s budget? Really?

    Suddenly I don’t feel so bad.

    That’s not chair porn.

    THIS http://www.eatpes.com/roofsex.html is chair porn.

    if chairs didn’t exist, it would be necessary to invent them.

    Dear number 5

    As you glibly noted, it IS a chair.
    But you fail to also note that it is chair that has been designed to be on the same scale as humans.

    I.E. If you were presented with an actual photograph of a person beside the chair, you would see that they looked appropriately sized in relationship to each other, with neither person or chair appearing disproportionately small or disproportionately large.

    unlike this chair-

    This chair has zero presence.
    A soulless chair for a soulless workforce.

    This chair doesn’t need it’s own soul. It will gladly take yours. For $740 it better have activated charcoal in the cushions to absorb my SBDs.

    Getting used office chairs rocks. We got a nice-looking chair from a second-hand store for $20. When we examined it more closely, we found it was a fancy Norwegian HÃ¥g chair that retails for $1000. Not only that, they have a life-time warranty, so when the gas cannister (w?) gave out, we had it replaced for free. Sweet!

    $740 is really not that bad for an exceptional chair like this considering that in Finland an average office chair (not intended for consumers, but for companies furnishing offices) will cost you several hundred euros anyway. I’ve seen some very nice “executive” office chairs in the 1000 euro price range. I look at it kind of like the rather expensive Hästens beds: considering you’re going to spend 1/3 of your day in it, it’s well worth making the investment for the long term.

    Better than Homer Simpsons’ budget Factory Second from Econo-Save, “All right, Econo-save, you just made the list!”

    Wow.. it’s a chair.

    I, too, have a chair.

    yeah, but your chair is lame.

    Well, I’m glad they’re using the laws of physics. That’s a plus.

    It looks like the chair from “Better off Ted” that increased productivity by being incredibly uncomfortable.

    Already got Freedom chair, but this one is looking good.

    Without a mechanism?

    I guess I take cause and effect for granted… impressive.

    Actually, it was my grandfather who ‘literally wrote the book on ergonomics’:

    Still, looks like a lovely chair…

    that really isnt a weird price for a quality office chair. It’s not a home chair that you use for maybe a few hours a day.

  21. AirPillo says:

    You can find some of the previous chair models on eBay for around $200-300, which is really rather fair for a high quality office chair, given that you’re likely to be asked to pay $70 or more even for a piece of crap pleathersaurus with shoddy constuction.

    I think I spotted one of the Humanscale chairs for $271 with free shipping.
